website analysis 7 Deadmau5

Deadmau5 is a Grammy Award-nominated and Juno Award-winning electronic DJ/dance artist known for his trademark helmet and popular live shows.

When the audience first enter the website they are greeted to deadmau’s home page the layout is very simplistic and easy to navigate and explore

The background colour of this website is black. The colour black could represent power. Deadmau5 was one of the original EDM producers has had a very successful career becoming of of or if not the best producer. Therefore he is very powerful in the music industry and the background portrays his power that he has on the industry.

In the bottom left hand corner of the homepage screen there is picture portraying who he is and his mask that he wears during a festival. this shows how powerful and strong his brand that he has created is in the fact that people can recognize  the producer just by looking at images of his mask.

When the audience enters his website the page that the audience are viewing is called Deadmau5 TV this is a page where if he live streams the views can watch the live stream directly off this website rather than going to a new web page to interact with Deadmouse. This feature to his website is extremely efficient to his audience and his fans as when deadmouse is streaming they can directly talk to him via the chat bar in the right hand side of the screen.

The website is asymetrical as they have parts which fail to correspond to one another in shape, size, or arrangement; lacking symmetry. this makes the website seem quite busy with there not being much room and blank space around the screen

His website is different to the websites that i have already analyzed being that it has a more complex layout and the second you enter his website one of his songs are playing or a song that he has supported is playing. Next to this there is a twitch chat bar. He has added this to his website as he sometimes live streams on a website called twitch. This is effective as people can just go to his website when he is live and comment on his streams

There are many tabs at the top of the page. The first one is his tour dates and when u click on this tab there is a quick transition to show all his upcoming tour dates that he will be performing live on and behind this there is an image of his trademark helmet that he is known for. The next tab is for news and everything that is happening in deadmau5 life. The following tab is the message board where he can post anything about events VIP etc. The next three tabs at the top centre of the page are media, releases and merch. From these his audience can find out anything about deadmau5 and where he is visiting

The font looks like it is serif font this is a formal and sophisticated font which tells the audience about his music. This font contrasts from the background helping the text stand out making it easier for the audience to read the text.

The font colour is white and the background is black. these two colours contrast one another the best therefore as a reader the text will be clear and easy to look at.
